Using the selected novels and essays of James Baldwin in conjunction with a theory and method of queering, this book constructs a black theology of liberation that engages the very important question in the new millennium: How do we reconcile sexualities with faith? EL Kornegay, Jr. seeks to answer that question by placing sex in the place where rage produces theological violence understood as sexism and homophobia, and informs how we talk about sexuality in relation to race, God, the gospel and liberation. Therefore A Queering of Black Theology: James Baldwin's, Blues Project and Gospel Prose is a third generation black theological project that is the next logica evolution beyond a black theology of liberation and black Womanist theology.
